With dishes of thick, sage-seasoned veal chops and house-made pasta on its tables, it's no wonder that the dining room at Da Noi gets crowded. The Midtown spot is usually "packed with devotees of solid Northern Italian fare," according to New York Magazine, which also praised the "elegant" wood-paneled dining room.
A Taste of Northern Italy
Da Noi's chefs celebrate the subtleties of Northern Italian cuisine by tirelessly chopping fresh herbs, slicing scarlet-hued beef carpaccio, and saut?ing filets of fresh sole in white wine. Da Noi's handmade pasta dishes have turned many first-time diners into regulars, but other enthusiasts return again and again for pasta-free dishes such as grilled chicken livers dressed in a tangy balsamic dressing and served over fresh field greens.
A Sip of La Dolce Vita
The dessert menu rubs shoulders with the cocktail program at Da Noi, and the results are lavishly indulgent. Bartenders mix and muddle ingredients such as white chocolate and fresh blueberries with potent liqueurs, and decorate shaken martinis with whimsical garnishes. Glasses of silky housemade limoncello present a careful balance of sweet and tart flavors.
With ample menu offerings throughout the day, the newly reopened Dominick’s is a one-stop eatery set to satisfy sweet and savory gourmet cravings. Select an imperial sandwich, such as the chicken caesar ($9.99) to tame unruly stomachs with succulent chicken and an iron fist. Feast on the piquancy of a vodka pizza ($15) or employ foam Hulk hands to grip an unwieldy half-pound portobello burger ($12.99). Fresh cannoli graces bakery shelves with fluffy dough and sugary filling, supported by a fleet of neatly assembled pastries. The café’s delicate chandeliers illuminate neat brick walls, glossy wooden tabletops, and the cheerful faces of Dominick's staff, which would otherwise be standing in the dark.
Offering authentic Italian fare in an elegant dining environment, Bistro Restaurant entices epicures with an eclectic assortment of lunch and dinner specialties. Start dinner with an appetizing mouth party of steamed Prince Edward Island mussels ($10), or opt for the arugula 'n’ grilled portobello salad topped with roasted red peppers and grape tomatoes ($9). Culinary traditionalists can chomp on a classic margarita pizza with basil and fresh mozzarella ($10 for a 12" pizza), and fire-eaters can savor spicy fra diavolo on fettuccine pescatore with shrimp, calamari, octopus, clams, and mussels ($26). For tongue-snuggling entrees, the gnocchi alla genovese embraces taste buds with the help of a basil pesto cream sauce ($16), and veal scaloppine snuggles next to roasted shallots and mushroom fortified wine sauce ($22).
La Strada's chef and owner, Anthony Santisi, keeps his extensive dinner and lunch menus brimming with classic Italian favorites. Appetizers such as the crispy fried calamari (served with sweet, medium, or hot sauce; $12) or stuffed artichoke ($11) make savory curtain-raisers for chef Anthony's star attraction, pork chops la strada ($24), which pairs well with the Chimney Rock Cabernet from the wine list. Alternately excellent entrees, including classic zuppa di pesce ($30), let your senses snorkel through the flavors of the sea, and La Strada's specialty homemade lasagna ($17) blankets tongues in a stack of saucy layers. Pasta dishes such as the rigatoni caprese pit fresh Italian plum tomatoes, garlic, olive oil, and fresh basil against each other in an arena of rigatoni pasta dusted with shredded fresh mozzarella cheese ($17). La Strada's special dessert of the day will finish the feast with a sweet surprise, assuming you haven't already figured out that your blind date is Batman.
